Hi. I'm Mark

a dedicated creative professional that thrives on solving meaningful problems with a diverse team. I’m a project leader and designer whose approach combines the creativity and velocity of film production with the rigour of data informed, user-centric design.

As Design Manager at HERE I led design, innovation and prototyping projects which were integral part of customer engagement and our presence at shows like CES and Mondial.

As part of the platform product management team I spearheaded an initiative to enable data sharing between governments and car manufacturers; working across three business units and two continents to create a new program and lead it successfully through a product portfolio review by senior leadership. (C-Level)

I excel at aligning and managing resources, goals and expectations.
I put personal relationships over process and tools, and achieve success by the integration of design, engineering and business viewpoints.
